Wishing everyone peace and prosperity in the Year of the Rooster. May it bring you strength and luck.
Happy Chinese New Year!
Happy Chinese New Year! Here is a little red Lion Dance plush I was commissioned to make last year that I never shared
The pattern was based on the previous Lions that I made only smaller. The plush is roughly 20cm long made from high quality fleece with felt details and embroidery.
The commissioner requested that the family name on the belly (not shown).
The name is machine cut from professional quality vinyl (vivid flex heat transfer vinyl) in black on white jersey material.
Other elements of the designs include:
- Silver faux leather Mirror on the forehead
- Pom pom nose details
- Plasticard re-enforced feet for balance and stability
- Black felt “fringe” on the body and legs.
And now the completed painting joins “Vampire” and “Siren”. I have two other monsters from my initial sketches that I hope will be realized soon.
